The beautiful Labyrinth Trail
Hiking across a bizarre rocky desert...
This trail leads through a maze of boulders and rock beneath the Latemar Range.
This hike is especially exciting for children. Accessible via a forest road from Passo Costalunga/Karerpass
Distance: 8,4 km - Duration: 3:30 hours
Vertical climb: 220 m - max. height: 1905 m
Starting Point: Passo Costalunga (Karerpass)
Arrival Point: Passo Costalunga (Karerpass)
Parking: Rosengarten Hotel, Passo Costalunga
At Passo di Costalunga (Karerpass), follow Trail M21, across the street from the Hotel Rosengarten.
At the first fork, turn right and cross a Meadow towards the Woods. The trail descends slightly at first then turns into a forest road that leads almost flat to the next crossroads.
Here, turn left for a shortcut up the hill, marked M13, then continue on Trail n. 21 which again turns into a forest road and eventually reaches a Clearing. Continue on the trail that leads down and through the Woods.
At 1750m, it crosses trail n. 18 coming up from the Lago di Carezza Hotel. Stay on trail n. 21, and follow the signs to Mitterleger (30 minutes). Mitterleger Alm (1839 m) is located in the middle of a beautiful montain Meadow and is usually closed. There are benches and tables where you can take a short break, though. Trail n. 21 would take you straight to Obereggen in about 2 hours. Instead, follwo trail n. M20, also signposted Labyrinthsteig, east towards the majestic Towers and crags of Latemar Mountain. At around 1850 metres, the trail passes the tree line and offers a magnificent view of the Catinaccio (Rosengarten) Massif. The path continues east, winding trough a maze of small and large boulders: you might sometimes even have to use your Hands to climb over them. The trail is well marked with White and red paint. For the last section of the circular walk take trail n. 18; at around 1750 metres, it meets trail n. 21, which that takes you back to the starting Point.
